I am a happily married mom of four twenty-something sons, each a colorfully unique star in my universe. My husband is a jokester, a bear of a loving man who endlessly teases us all. Though my boys are grown I still share in the joy of their adventure. My family is love.
I teach. I wish my students a solid life foundation. I believe that connecting with each other as human beings is an essential skill. Self-confidence and self-awareness are as important in life as any academic knowledge. I use laughter and storytelling, movement and skit building. I encourage communication and expression.
I love theater. I have relished my own stage experiences and love sharing the joy of performance with my students. Providing an opportunity for someone to shine is a gift. Nurturing theater kids is a rewarding, chaotic, happy privilege.
I read, and by that I mean I read a lot. My imagination is lively, electric and consuming. I am working on becoming more physically energetic but admit that working out is more trial than triumph. I prefer long wilderness walks where I can imagine fairies peeking out of the greenery to a sweaty jog or lifting weights.
My friends are an eclectic lot. I favor interesting unique characters to the ordinary. I am lucky enough to know some really great people. I am glad you stopped by, because you may very well become one of them!
